Explore the Love Metaphor in Misaq-e-Ishq (The Covenant of Love) at the Aga Khan Museum

The Aga Khan Museum invites guests to experience Misaq-e-Ishq, a captivating event described by writer and Coke Studio singer Ali Sethi as “an exploration through poetry and music of the dialogue between humanity and divinity.”

Harvard professor Dr. Ali S. Asani and Grammy-winning musician and producer Noah Georgeson will accompany Sethi on-stage, as they chart the evolution of the love metaphor in Indo-Muslim Sufi thought via the poetry of a range of languages, regions and eras.

With Asani reciting poetry and Sethi and Georgeson leading the accompanying soundtrack, the event will pay tribute to Sufi poets and visionaries, as well as to humanist and mystic Moinuddin Chishti, who preached devotion to humankind as a pathway to the divine.

COST: Tickets are $40 and include same-day Museum admission.
